Default Thermometer sensor

I recently bought a digital thermometer for my truck but I don't know where to put the sensor. I tried putting it in the door jam like the directions said and then I tried putting it between the bed and the cab but it always heats up once I start driving.

Any suggestions on where to put the sensor so it won't heat up?

It has to be outside for it to be accurate.
